Full Details

With use, can help restore ions lost from protein skimming and help maintain the ionic balance of the aquarium water.

 

Recommended starting dose is 1 mL of each component per 4 gallons of aquarium capacity per day. Test calcium and alkalinity frequently until the correct dosing amount is acheived to keep both elements stable from day to day. Each tank will be different and depending on many different variables will determine how much your tank will need to be dosed on a daily basis.

  • Amazin,g polyp extension By Cullen on 7/19/2017

    This is amazing how my sps are responding to this product. I have always used Seachem Reef1&2 and have never had my sps respond so well. Blue tort acro has all polyps out and birdsnest is so big and fluffy from extension. All lps and softies are loving this product. Will definately buy again.
  • ESV By Julio on 7/15/2017

    The best product for the calcium and alkalinity
  • Excellent By Ronb55 on 5/11/2017

    Have used this for the past several years ....excellent product and the tank shows it
  • Great Product! By Joshua on 4/24/2017

    As soon as I started using ESV 2-part the coralline algae bloomed and is now taking over my back glass and rock.
  • High Quality Product Keeps Levels Balanced By Davide on 4/9/2017

    My CA and ALK remain stable and my inhabitants healthy. I dose each part 4 times per day at separate intervals. You do not want to run each part at the same time. The fluids also drip into a high flow area of the sump. I recommend trying this product out.
  • Should be called ICONIC By Mathius on 11/20/2016

    Hands down best 2 part on market. If you need a perfect healthyreef this is the stuff been using for many many years.
  • Great 2-part dosing solution By Reefer1 on 7/29/2016

    This is the best 2-part dosing solution available. And it's so much easier than the powders.
    Highly recommend
  • Great stuff By Greg on 6/13/2016

    Never used any other product. Alk and calc levels have always been great. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
  • ESV dosing By nick name on 6/9/2016

    Seems to work well and says it also replenishes many of the trace elements that sea water contains. It's been working for me for a couple years now.
  • Awesome product By Ken on 5/6/2016

    I use the two-part system via dosing pumps for about 6 years now. Easy to use and consistently keeps my CA, MG and, along with the Alkalinity (part 1), keeps that in check too.
  • easy By Christi on 3/18/2016

    I only have a 20 gallon so dosing can be a little bit a of pain. But this seems to work great my corals look pretty good..
  • Easy, mixes clean, and works By sjohnson2152 on 2/24/2016

    I set up a 2 part doser a few months back and have so far only used ESV's 2 part so I don't have much to compare it to. However, I find this stuff is easier than mixing up powders/salts (still do that with my Mg) even if I have to wait a day or two for it to dissolve completely. Once it's mixed I have never seen it separate/precipitate out again and it stays nice and clear.

Product Questions

For the 8 gallon package, I assume you need to dilute to get final product but how long will the diluted gallons be able to stay in the bucket until used? Will it still be good after 1 year or 1.5 year?
Question by: hipertec on Nov 15, 2017 10:13:00 PM
Once the solution is mixed it is good for almost indefinitely. Just as long as no foreign substances get into the buckets, you should have no issue using it over the course of a couple years. ESV does not fill them completely to help save weight, and when it comes to shipping excess water, no one wins.
Answer by: Charlie (Admin) on Nov 18, 2017 9:48:00 PM
Hi, I have a question about the 8 gallons package, is it 8 gallon of concentrate to dilute or 8 gallons of final product after you had water ?
Question by: Gilles on May 23, 2016 10:59:00 AM
Great question! The 8 gallon package is referring to 8 gallons of final product, after diluting.
Answer by: Carter (Admin) on May 25, 2016 3:06:00 PM
I purchased the 16 oz and had no idea I had to dilute it because it says that nowhere on the bottle and the bottle was full. Am I ok? I was dosing it like that for a month or two but the corals look fine?
Question by: Anthony on Feb 2, 2017 8:19:00 AM
Hey there! Gallon-sized and 5 gallon-sized bottles are concentrated so they will need to be diluted. The smaller bottles do not need to be diluted, so it sounds like you are good to go! :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Feb 2, 2017 11:56:00 AM
I am using the 2 part doesing 10ml in a 29 gal cube my alk is at 12.9 and calcium is at 289 how do i correct my alk and still raise calcium i use 10 ml of each can i stop the alk and just dose calcium till i reach proper levels? curtis
Question by: curtis dertien on Mar 20, 2016 2:57:00 PM
Great question!
First step will be to perform a massive water change with a good salt mix to equalize the two levels. From there you can retest and individually dose the elements until they become more balanced. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 21, 2016 6:27:00 PM
I'm looking for something other than 2 part that you could use to raise you Calcium, Alkalinity, and Magnesium. Then use 2 part along with Kalkwasser to maintain them. Or am I all off base with my thinking? Thanks.
Question by: David on May 15, 2014 12:28:00 AM
Hey David,
Two part really is what you would use to do the adjusting, then use kalk to maintain the levels (and keep the two part on hand for occasional adjustment). This is because its about the only method that lets you individually adjust each parameter independently of the other.

To be entirely honest I can't think of any reason to not do it the normal way but if there is something unique or I am missing something let us know and we will help you figure out the best plan of action for you. You might be interested in this kit as well, it has all of the individual solutions as well as the kalk to get you starter. It should be back in stock in the next few days.

Is the calculator for the brs 2 part the same for esv . making it the same strength
Question by: Tony on May 3, 2016 10:24:00 PM
Great question!
Our Calculator is designed for our BRS 2 part products the ESV is not a direct replacement and the solution will be different.
